Where to stay in Machu Picchu

Visitors to Machu Picchu won't find much in the way of accommodations on the site itself. In fact, there's only one hotel located there, a rather pricey one that sits right by the ticket booths. Many of those who come to see the ruins stay in the nearby town of Aguas Calientes, situated just a short bus drive to the east. The accommodations here vary greatly, from backpacker-friendly hostels, to plush riverside hotels with additional facilities, such as spas, restaurants, and bars.
